    Last month, we reported on Jaguar's move to a turbocharged-four and supercharged V6 engines for the XF and XJ models. Today, Jaguar officially announced the new engines and a AWD option for the XF and XJ.

    Starting off with the XF, the 2013 base model will have a 2.0L turbocharged-four from the Range Rover Evoque. The 2.0L is rated at 240 HP and 251 lb-ft of torque. Next up will be the 3.0L supercharged V6 which will take the place of the 5.0L naturally-aspirated V8 engine. The supercharged 3.0L is rated at 340 HP. The supercharged 5.0L V8 stays on.

    Next is the XJ which also gets the 3.0L Supercharged V6 in the XJ and long-wheelbase XJL. The 5.0L NA V8 will stay on the long wheelbase XJL Portfolio model.

    Both engines will come with a eight-speed automatic from ZF. AWD will also be an option on the XF and XJ, but only if you order the 3.0L Supercharged V6. Also available as an option is a stop-start system.

    It is good for business to have more fuel efficient options and all wheel drive. It is a bit of a shame that the 5.0 V8 is gone, 340 hp is a bit weak, and it is a big jump in horsepower and MSRP to get to the supercharged V8. I will miss all Jags having a big V8 and rear drive.

    Rear-drive is still unappreciated by the masses. Jaguar is making a turbocharged 4cyl? Brings back memories of the late unlamented Jaguar X-type.

    Jaguar has a nice diesel V6 too, it makes around 265 hp and 440 lb-ft. I would be more fuel efficient than the 2.0 turbo also. I don't get the crazy push to put turbo 4's in everything from the Verano and Subarus, all the way up to Jags and BMWs, when a diesel will give better fuel economy and better acceleration.
